Castlefields aim to be up to scratch

LITTLE Castlefields are ready to mix it with the big boys in the Halifax-Huddersfield Union’s Scratch Team Championship at Dewsbury on Sunday.

Players from the Rastrick six-hole course won the Division Two Championship at Meltham last month to earn a place in the Founders Trophy along with Todmorden, Saddleworth and Outlane, who filled the other leading places.

Those clubs join the leading 11 from last year’s competition, which was won by Meltham at Halifax Golf Club.

Nigel Bell, Matthew Spink, Nick Kelly and Paul Hardcastle were the Castlefields quartet on duty last month.

The presentation for the John Eyre-sponsored event will take place in the clubhouse at approximately 8.0.
